    EVERYBODY that votes needs to write in your candidate's name on the sheet.

    Whether it's Barack Obama, Mitt Romney, Ron Paul, Gary Johnson or WHOEVER.


    Write their names in. It only takes a half a minute to write somebody's name so don't act like it's a gotdamn chore. unless you don't care if your vote counts or not and would rather put that responsibility in the hands of the voting machines and the dolts that run them. way too much possibility of fraud when those 2 factors determine your final choice.

    So it might as well be YOUR handwriting in INK.

    That way it's no excuses, no mix ups, not undercounted votes, no fraud, and definitely no gotdamn hanging chads

    Do you agree?

    dumbest idea ever. Handwriting experts from the Dems would claim that the word Romney wasn't legible, and that ballot should be discounted, while experts from the right would claim they spelled Barack Obama incorrectly so 'that' ballot should be discounted.

    Did you even think before you posted this??

    Texas politicians are saying that punching a specific person's name after voting straight ticket automatically cancels that specific person. I have some reminders - http://www.usmessageboard.com/election-forums/256928-important-election-reminder.html

    Any handwriting expert that says YOUR handwriting is the same as mine needs a labotomy.

    DUMBASS!

    You think a hanging chad can determine a winner better?

    I heard that this morning. they said that if you vote straight ticket as a Dem but want to choose Romney as President, your vote is cancelled.

    TALK ABOUT VOTER FRAUD. I guess they just said fuck it, we'll do voter fraud out in the open and in you face, what are you gonna do about it?

    Sorry too much potential for debating the writing. Sounds costly too.

    Voter IDs please. IDs just like we need to do so many other actions in this country.

    Definitely keep the voter ID. that's how they get in line.

    But how costly is it to have some ball pens on the table that they already have when you walk in? You already have to sign your name on the voting roll anyway.

    People sit for 10-15 minutes trying to decide their choices anyway. so where's the cost?

    I think given the absolute seriousness of THIS election, it's crucial all the votes are counted, counted properly and counted accurately. and distinct signatures do just that. hanging chads don't. and whose to say this election won't be cluttered with hanging chads again?

    Have you ever spent much time trying to read other people's handwriting?

    I think the cost comes from the disputes over the handwriting that will occur as well as the need for so much human intervention to read each and every ballot. I also think there might be some who would use poor scribble to muck up the elections.
